Remodeled Farmhouse on 100 Acres w/ 2 Ponds - Bring Your Horses and Relax!

Set on 100 acres in Blue Hill, Maine, Kingdom Road is a working farm with sheep, chickens, and hay harvesting during the warmer months. Offering a mix of ponds, streams, pastures, hay fields, and abundant forestland, the farm is also perfect for guests who want to bring their own horses! The property is home to a 200-year-old cemetery and abuts hundreds of acres of protected lands (Blue Hill Heritage Trust) with walking trails and easy parking. This area is a paradise for birders and nature enthusiasts, as well as the well-known Bagaduce Lunch on the shores of the tidal Bagaduce River. There is much to do, so load up your gear, canoes, and kayaks and enjoy!

Originally built around the circa-1800 fireplace and bread oven, this true farmhouse provides all-around comfort for our guests. Enjoy comfortable overnight lodging and a full kitchen where you can prepare your own meals. The house has two floors, each with two bedrooms: one with twin beds and the other with a queen bed. All four bedrooms feature 10-inch cooling memory foam mattresses and private bathrooms. Each floor has its own seating area, and there's a full kitchen with complementary fresh eggs from the chickens outside.

The farmhouse is fully insulated and offers an individually controlled heating and cooling system in each bedroom for year-round comfort. There's even an old, well-tuned piano in the downstairs common area for musical noodling or a fun-filled family sing-along!

The interior of the building has been beautifully finished to pay homage to the historic nature of the house. Reclaimed barn boards from renovated outbuildings on the premises grace the farmhouse's walls as wainscoting, chair rails, and trim boards. The original posts and beams have been left exposed throughout the house and are augmented by new timber framing in the main entryway and the common area downstairs.

Things to know:
Free WiFi (but there is no TV)
Full kitchen with a three-tub industrial sink (but no dishwasher)
The fireplace is purely decorative and is not for guest use
The on-site barn can shelter up to four horses and the pastures can be used for farm weddings coordinated through Vacasa. Contact Vacasa for more details.
This home is on a fully functioning farm with sheep and chickens. Guests can see, but not interact with, the animals. The farmer will be on the property occasionally to take care of the livestock, but he will not interact with guests nor have access to the home.
A damage waiver, covering up to $2,000 of accidental damage to the property or its contents, is included in the cost of your reservation.

Parking Notes: Parking across from large barn behind the house.

We really enjoyed our time there. Great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Mowed trail led through part of the property. About an hour from Acadia, 30 minutes or less from grocery store(s). A few notes:

One of the outside doors was open when we arrived (the sliding glass one). Nothing was amiss, but it was a bit concerning. Those doors are difficult to lock.

Key lock box was not functional, but the key code worked for the leftmost door and there was a key inside.

There is WiFi, but it is slow. Felt like satellite internet. Likely nothing to be done about it, but don't expect to do much online here.

Bedroom windows need better curtains. What's there doesn't do much to block the sun, which is up a long time in June. 😀
Manager response:
Hi, Erik! It was our pleasure hosting you and we are glad you enjoyed your visit. Thank you for letting us know there is room for improvement. The entry is a keyless lock and lockboxes are not needed. The sliders are new and our team confirms they aren't hard to lock. We are sorry that you had problems with the speed of the WiFi. It is the best that is available in the area. Thank you for staying with us. We hope to host you again in the future!

This was perfect for us. The scenery was beautiful and we were close to Acadia which was important to our family. The house was wonderful and the grounds were beautifully maintained.

Can’t say enough good things about our new favorite person, Farmer Ben, who was the consummate host. He would pop in every day or so while tending to the farm and chickens and was a great guide and recommended some awesome spots (Bagaduce Lunch is a must).

Highly recommend.

Beautiful place to relax. Farmer Ben was great with communication. Home was recently renovated and very clean.

There was plenty of room for our group of four adults, two teens and two kids; and the farm provided space for us to roam.

Three adults and 2 kids stayed here for 6 days. Plenty of room, the Chickens and Sheep (and even Barn Swallows) were of great entertainment to adults and kids alike. Fresh eggs and freshly picked flowers greeted us the moment we walked in. Farmer Ben was there on and off but never intrusive, and had some great suggestions for food and things to do. We walked a little bit of the trail, but most days headed out to explore Blue Hill and beyond. We highly recommend Kingdom Road Farm! Thanks Farmer Ben, we'll surely see you again!

This is a great place for a family gathering with children. There was room to run around, collect eggs, and play games. I would definitely recommend it.
